I picked mine up Sunday & I can't find the date code anywhere. I called the LV store where I bought it & they wouldn't tell mme where to look. I'm concerned because there is some kind of straw or shredded peices of paper in the bottom & I'm thinking this may be a returned bag. I really am freaking out because it has a plastic hangimg tab kind of thing on the front strap & I'm pretty sure that shouldn't be there! I got it at the LV store in SCP. I need some help!!!!!!!
